I've hopped, and hopped, and hopped, and hopped...
and within a week or two.. sometimes a month.. I'm hopping again.
I just paid 46.00 for EQ2 Sentinel's fate, and already bored with it. Why? Because I've already done it before, in 3 or 4 other games. It feels and plays just like every other WoW clone in recent history. You create a toon, you grind quests, and you raid. You solo most of the time, and you don't socialize unless your in a guild, and even then sometimes you don't... why? Because everyone is too busy grinding quests, and raiding. Its just a means to an end now. There is no adventure, there is no epic feeling of exploration, you are not playing a role. Its just a shell of a game, where your trying to get from point A to B with as little delay as possible. That is NOT fun to me. I argued with a friend today, who doesn't like to be challenged. He'd rather be shown where every quest is, be able to insta travel to every location, and be able to eat a sandwich while he quests endlessly. If he had to travel to a location on foot without a speedy mount, he'd cry.
I cannot play anymore of these games. I cannot do another "quest to end cap solo fest". I want to be a part of the world, and socialize with everyone around me as it pertains to the game, not just people I know or who I am in a guild with. I want the game to facilitate me being able to do that as well. Not, just when I need experience points or "gear". I don't want to spend my entire night alone, in a game thats meant to be multiplayer. I don't want to be in a guild of folks who are all "alone" even though they are together in the guild.
So at this point I'm considering that FFXI and possibly FFXIV are my last hope for an MMO that isn't about just questing to end cap and raiding, with little to no interaction other than to chat about who has the best purples. I want to follow an epic "RPG" storyline that unfolds as I level and play.
FFXIV on Behemoth, FFXI on Eden, and Gloria Victis on NA.
